Waterman continues to support engineering graduates of the future under the University of Sheffield’s Industrial Tutor scheme.

The scheme run by Sheffield University aims to encourage its 1st year students to engage with industry and give them a realistic view of engineering practice and inspire them with experience of the more practical side of the job.

Through Waterman’s continued involvement in the University’s scheme, two of its engineers, Evan Loh and Steve Peck conducted a tour of the Bifrangi site in Lincoln with four 1st year students.

The Bifrangi project is a large production building 20m to eaves with two 150T cranes and a 20m diameter 10m deep press pit. The project was presented to the attending students to outline the many technical challenges encountered by the scheme to give them a ‘hands on’ understanding of modern engineering practices.
